Blue Sky...

Life can be tough sometimes. 

Things don't go our way. 

We lose a close friend or family member. 

We get frustrated with the progress we're making. 

Whatever it may be. 

Those are the clouds in our life. 

But what we tend to forget is the blue sky is always there. 

Remember, the blue sky is always there. 

You're going to have days, weeks, and times in your life where you feel like you have that black cloud hanging above you and you can't escape it. 

But remember, the blue sky is always there. 

Those clouds will pass. 

Have you ever taken off on a plane on a cloudy or stormy day, and then as soon as you elevate above the clouds you get blinded by the sun and blue sky in your window?

That's a great reminder that the blue sky is always there. 

No matter the situation, no matter how frustrated, angry, or sad you are, remember...

The blue sky is always there. 

It's the cloudy days and the rain storms where growth occurs. 

If every day was a blue sky no growth would occur. 

Think about our great green earth. 

Things live, thrive, and stay green, partly because of the water that falls from the sky, water that is formed on those dark days. 

Our biggest growth happens on those dark cloudy days. 

Think back to the times in your life when you had the most personal growth. 

The change was usually the result of something negative. 

Whether it's as large as losing a family member or a day to day struggle of finally being fed up with how your pants fit, it was those cloudy day moments that instilled action in you to then bring out the blue sky. 

No matter how many clouds, the blue sky is always there. 

1% Better.

PS: I hope all of you can get a lesson out of this one, but this one was written to my dear friend and team member, Coach Kim. She lost a close family member yesterday. It would mean the world to me if you could add some blue sky to her life right now and send her a small note if she's had any positive impact on your life. Her e-mail is kim@spurlingfitness.com. I know she'll appreciate it.
